I would like to thank Gwen Hayes, Cassandra Marshall, Mikaela Pederson, Emily Nemchick, and Laura Kingsley for their editorial assistance at various stages in the writing of this story. Also my thanks to Claire Ashgrove at Finish the Story and Rebecca J. Cartee for their fast and thorough proofreading. The lovely cover is courtesy of Damonza and the excellent formatting was done by Allen at eB Format. I have to include my heartfelt admiration for Elizabeth Cochrane Seaman, better known as Nellie Bly. She authored Ten Days in a Madhouse, a major resource in the writing of this book.
